    GpgEX
    I was looking at Encryption for my email, but unfortunately downloaded this pain that I can't get rid of.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of GpgEX?

    Like that program Storeage, but it didn't even see GpgEX.
    Thanks anyway.
    Thing is GpgEX lives in a DLL

    did you install the gpex using the windows installer or did you just drop the dll files in the appropriate directory

    I was just searching for the download file, but I must have deleted it.
    From my download history, I think it was called gpg4win-lite-2.3.0.exe

    all current copies on gpg site are giving invalid signatures and are not opening or able to be extracted on my computer so I can't see what it does
    I think you probably are stuck and might end up doing a reinstall with this one

    Folks. Thanks for your help.
    I did a completely new install, which has got rid of it.

    For note for anyone thinking of doing a complete re-install. Windows 10 gets rid of EVERYTHING on your PC. All your programs will need reinstalled, every singe thing. It's like a complete format of your drive.
